on that stage and cannot wait to be there and are eager to make their case. bill clinton was like that. ronald reagan was like that. these two are not like that. for them, this is more, please do not let me do anything wrong, than, what can i do right? as was discussed earlier, he needs a dramatic moment to shift the momentum. if he is intimidated by the experience or feeling boxed in, he is less likely to do that. for obama, it is more a question for maintaining his lead. he does not want to do anything right now that reverses the trajectory he is on. i would expect he is a little timid as well. >> if you look at past debates, one dealing with policy, the moment with gerald ford, the other is more style, where obama made a joke about his age. how much is policy and how much a style in these debates? >> i think probably my judgment would be a lot of it is stylistic. it is the way they come across to the voters. it is not necessarily as much what they are saying as how they are saying it. every once in awhile, it is really more of a case of glitch avoidance. that has a lot to do with their hand

clinton just goes over there and does the walk on this person. and she is the only person in the universe. >> you feel my pain. >> i do not think we wanted to go there. [laughter] >> i am not sure you want to follow that. but to go ahead. >> i think we are moving in the right direction. i think it is a good combination of formats. the town hall where you get questions that may be a bit unusual. complemented by the single moderator format. that may not be the case when have the panel. >> you have the other aspect -- you have these sustained blocks of time on particular issues. i think that is a good innovation. >> general format? >> i would agree. with the sentiment. that both of these formats we did anything that facilitates greater interaction between the candidates and the public, or interruption amongst the candidates themselves is significant and productive. i think it is a positive move. >> the journalism profession seems to be coming out. would you still favor that? >> i do not know. journalism is the second oldest profession. look, i just think that journalism and mass media, telev

. the more affluent people keep it. our economy goes down. i think during the last -- when clinton was in, he balanced the budget. when bush and got it, they spent money like it was going out of style. >> is your vote going to barack obama this time? >> yes. i feel that he is qualified in every phase of the government. i do not think romney knows enough about foreign policy. i think he will get us into a war if he keeps saying what he is saying. >> we will hear about for a policy more in the debate in florida. -- foreign policy it in the debate in florida. >> last night was an important night for the country. [cheers and applause] the got the chance to cut through of all the attacks and counterattacks associate with the campaign. instead they're able to listen to substance. i appreciated the fact that jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i was able to ask the president, why did he focus on obamacare when we have millions of people out of work? [applause] why isn't that the middle class is the bird in this country? why we have so many people out of work? -- why is it that the middle cla

, the moderate clinton-johnson -- i want to make one point, despite senator mccain's joke about governors. [laughter] i noticed arnold said something about body mass in his opening speech. the four governors here, and i do not mean to disparage what is happening in washington, we as governors, and i hope the schwarzenegger institute does not abandon states and local government and county commissions. we have to work together with the legislature. we have to balance the budget or we go to jail. maybe that is how some got there. so by partisanship -- bipartisanship athens. i worked with arnold when we were governors on clean energy. on climate change. we were ahead. immigration -- with charlie on health care. by the way, john and i came to the congress, said the same time. we worked on navajo issues and creating a federal boxing commission and native american issues with tom daschle. i think this is a good issue -- panel. the states, there are laboratories ofbi partisanship -- bi partisanship that the government can learn from. maybe this institute can figure that out. >> pick up on that. i

clinton's chief of staff. this says let's see if we can get competition into the medicare world so people can get the choice of different plans at lower cost, better policy is a quality. i believe in competition. >> every study has shown matters here -- medicare has the word administrative cost. -- medicare has lower administrative costs than regular insurance has. this is why seniors are generally happy with it. private insurers have to make a profit. that is what they do. you have higher administrative costs plus profit on top of that. if you were going to save any money to what governor romney is proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies. over time, if traditional medicare has decayed, they are stuck. this is why aarp has said your plan would begin medicare substantially. -- would weaken medicare substantially. that is why they were supportive of the approach we took. we do have to lower the cost of health care. >> we will talk about that in a minute. >
